Codie Walton, a former Larimer County Youth Conservation Corps member, testified on Monday in front of the State House Education Committee in favor of House Bill 1131, the Colorado Kids Outdoors Grant Program, sponsored by Representative Christine Scanlan and Senator Dan Gibbs.  This bill calls for a state environmental literacy plan and a statewide grant program to support getting children and youth into the out of doors.  This was Codie's second visit to the State Capitol in a month.  A 17-year old high school senior, Codie was also honored as a Corpsmember of the Year in late January.  She hopes to return to the corps this summer as a Crew Mentor.
